Today's Horoscope This week This month
Libra horoscope for September 2022
This month has a little bit of everything and as you prepare to move into your birthday month and new solar year on 23rd September there is every reason to be excited about the journey ahead. Professionally, while Venus left your career sector last month, ending all planetary activity on the career front, both planets in your work sector are keeping the momentum going but without any real urgency. A Full Moon here on 10th September will give work and job matters a boost and this could act as a trigger for income potential as well but this is unlikely to be a busy or all consuming month where you will struggle to take your work hat off and just as well, for life has other plans.
It was last month that Mars returned to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery for the first time in two years, something that would normally see the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos spend six weeks fuelling a passion for adventure and a hunger for life's richer experiences. Instead, those six weeks will come and go and instead of moving on, Mars is slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn later next month that will not only keep him here for the rest of the year but until March 2023. This is not only Mars' longest visit to this adventurous part of your chart in eight decades, but it coincides with Saturn's final seven months in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart.
With Saturn and Mars working in tandem, a life that is all work and no play is no longer an option and fortunately, with both planets in your work sector in retrograde motion that isn't required. That might change when Jupiter retrogrades back into your work sector later next month, just as new doors will be opening on the income front but that is for another month. For now, September is a month for embracing life and by the time you move into your birthday month and new solar year on 23rd September this will be so well established that it will set the tone from the start. Until then, in the closing weeks of this old solar year, you already have Mercury in Libra, helping you to explore your options.
Love & RomanceWhile Saturn will remain in retrograde motion in your romantic sector and Jupiter in retrograde motion in your relationship sector all month, as has been the case for several months now, the faster planets don't stay still and the conditions on both fronts will change. The last few months as the Sun, Venus, Mercury and the dwarf planet Ceres passed through your friendship sector have been good for Jupiter and the other planets in your relationship sector. Friendly aspects between planets on both fronts has created a lot of support for friendship and relationship building but at the same time, this put them in opposition with Saturn, in retrograde motion in your romantic sector.
This month the tables have turned or at least they are starting to turn. Until leaving your friendship sector on 5th September, Venus will continue to support the planets in your relationship sector, the last being her friendly aspect to the dwarf planet Eris in the final days of August. This came just as the tables started to turn, beginning with Mercury's return to Libra on 26th August. This is something that will see Mercury clash with Jupiter from 2nd September to 4th September, putting a balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test. As the planet of communication, this was always going to come with a chance to get the communication lines open, but it helps that the Moon will be in your communication sector from 3rd September to 5th September.
Meanwhile, where less than a month earlier Mercury clashed with Saturn in your romantic sector, this now puts them on the same side. Mercury will turn retrograde on 10th September, before he can move into a friendly aspect to Saturn but with the Sun returning on 23rd September, Venus on 29th September and Mars in his first full month in an adventurous part of your chart, this is the start of what will become a rise in a mix of romance, passion and adventure over the coming months, with a lot of romantic nostalgia thrown into the mix. There will be an early taste of this when the Moon moves through your romantic sector from 7th September to 9th September.
Business & CareerWhile it is business as usual on the job front this month and even a chance to pull back, there is both a surprise development and a sense of anticipation building towards the end of the month. After Venus' departure from your career sector last month ended all planetary activity on the career front for the year and with both planets in your work sector now in retrograde motion, there is a chance to pull back and even retrace your steps. Since his return in 2012, Neptune has always spent from June to November in retrograde motion, giving you a chance to revisit old dreams. The difference this year is that you also have the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment here as well.
This is giving you the resolve to turn old dreams into reality. This has been the case for several months now but work and job matters could get an unexpected boost when the Moon moves through your work sector from 9th September to 11th September. While the Moon returns every four weeks and this can give you an intuitive read on work and job matters while acting as a trigger, it is the Full Moon this will create on 10th September that can act as a catalyst. This is also when a sense of anticipation might start creeping in, with the Moon also able to enhance your over the horizon radar as it moves through.
With Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion retrograding back in next month to tie up loose ends, your sixth sense will be picking up on his approach. It is also next month the Sun, Mercury and Venus will not only return to your income sector to begin the first planetary activity on the income front this year, but a solar eclipse could trigger unexpected developments there as well. Meanwhile, with no planetary activity in your career sector after Venus left last month the Moon's return from 18th September to 21st September will be a valuable chance to check in. As well as fuelling your professional instincts and imagination, a friendly aspect to both planets in your work sector will make these especially good days on both the job and career fronts.
MoneyThe tide is turning on this financial year, with the pendulum slowly starting to shift away from an until now dominant focus on money matters and onto a new focus on the income side of the financial fence. This is a slow moving pendulum and while this has begun the process of shifting from one side of the financial fence to the other, it won't shift to the income side of the financial fence until next month and it is only just starting to shift away from money matters. The dominant focus is still in your financial sector, where the focus is more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have but not to the degree that it has been. It wasn't until Mars left your financial sector last month that things started to dial back.
It was the six weeks that Mars spent fuelling your financial passions and fighting spirit that has given you a chance to take your financial power back. However, it was Uranus' retrograde turn here five days later that put the brakes on and in retrograde motion now for the rest of the year, this is a chance to pull back. With the Sun, Mercury and Venus all returning to your income sector next month to begin the first planetary activity on the income front this year, this makes September a firebreak month. With some active months on the financial front behind you and active months on the income front ahead of you, this is a month where along with the lunar nodes, there is a chance to come back to the centre where things are more evenly balanced.
Because the Sun's return to your income sector next month will trigger the next round of eclipses on both sides of the financial fence, there is extra incentive to keep things low key this month. However, the month does get off to a good start, with the Moon in your income sector from 1st September to 3rd September. As well as sharpening your nose for money and acting as a trigger, a friendly aspect to both planets in your work sector will get the month off to a good start. It is two weeks later that the Moon's return to your financial sector will sharpen your financial instincts while giving you a chance to check in on money matters. It is from 28th September to 30th September that the Moon will return for its last visit to your income sector before the Sun's return, with a chance to start lining up for the most lucrative months of 2022.
